Tracking more wind, rain and tidal flooding in your forecast….Our weather will remain unsettled over the next several days due in part to an area of low pressure that continues to meander offshore. So, going through this Thursday, expect more clouds than sun. A few showers are possible, but no washout is expected.
With the low offshore, we will continue to feel a persistent northeast winds between 15 and 25 mph, which could cause some minor flooding around high tide today (around 6:38 p.m. at Sewells Point). High temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Tonight, a few showers are possible. It will still be breezy with overnight lows in the upper 60s.

On Friday and Saturday, we will be keeping a close eye on the low to our south. Some of our computer models are hinting at a pretty soggy end to the week into the weekend as it slowly moves our way. As the low pushes northeast into Sunday, we’ll likely see more rain, at least through the early to mid part of the day. Tidal flooding and high surf will continue to be problems this weekend. Highs will be in the mid 70s. We’ll gradually see better weather early next week.
Today: More Clouds Than Sun. Chance of Showers (20-30%). Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.
Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (30%). Breezy. Low temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.
Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (40%). Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.
